Here’s tonight’s Final Jeopardy answer and question for Tuesday, December 6, 2016:

|Anuj Patel, a scientist from San Francisco, California
||Alison Carey, a housewife from Cleveland, Ohio
||Tim Aten, an editor from Vermilion, Ohio (2-day total: $47,800)|
Who is Jane Austen?
A small note: While this isn’t the first time they’ve done this (Louisa May Alcott back in May as an example), it’s always nice to see Jeopardy asking about women authors in a category titled AUTHORS.
Meanwhile, the six novels referred to: Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park, Emma, Northanger Abbey, and Persuasion.
